Posted by Jennifer (the RD) on October 24, 2012

This is a recipe that comes from the davita.com website, www.davita.com .  It is kidney and diabetes friendly, but is also good for the general public since it is low fat and low salt. We are having a hawaiian celebration for out patients tomorrow and are serving this dish.  It smells heavenly when you are preparing it!

Ingredients:

One 8 ounce can juice packed pineapple chunks

1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts

  •   Add vegetables and pineapple.  Cook 10 minutes, stirring occasionally
